Dominic grew up in the Muthurwa estate of Nairobi, Kenya with his mother and three siblings. He ventured into the car wash business immediately after high school since he wasn't able to go to college and needed a source of income to help with his family's upkeep. He has been washing cars for a living for the past three years. When he found the opportunity to invest in Fresh Life toilets, he took keen interest and thought of it as a good source of additional income.

Dominic wishes to use the Fresh Life toilets to create employment opportunities for other youth once his franchise grows. He, therefore, seeks a loan to help him purchase and run one Fresh Life toilet.
